QuicDoc® and Office Therapy® January 2014 Newsletter

Improve Patient Outcomes, Increase Practice Efficiency and Maximize Cost Savings with Electronic Prescribing!

Electronic prescribing is more than generating a prescription on a computer and printing or faxing it to a pharmacy. E-prescribing must also provide functionality and workflow flexibility to work for both physicians and staff involved in the prescribing process. Over 63% of physicians nationwide are using e-prescribing as of 2012, helping provide a higher level of patient safety and service, streamline back office business systems and save time and money through the efficiency of electronic medication orders, renewals and formulary checking.

Some of the many benefits include:

  • Patient Safety: Make more informed real-time decisions by having the patient’s medication history and allergies at the point-of-care.
  • Time Savings: On average writing an electronic prescription takes about one minute and twenty seconds compared to three minutes and thirty seconds for a call-in.
  • Money Savings: Avoid the Medicare MIPPA and Meaningful Use penalties for 2014 and subsequent years.
  • Easy-to-Use Technology: Technology should make life easier, not more complicated. E-prescribing integrates seamlessly within QuicDoc, our electronic medical records software.
  • Positive Image: Patients will have greater confidence that their provider is current in all areas of health care by having the latest technology

DrFirstDocuTrac is also proud to announce the availability of 
EPCS Gold 2.0, which allows our QuicDoc customers to safely prescribe legend and schedule II-V drugs electronically
through the same workflow, further streamlining the prescription
writing process.

It's National Thank You Month!

Gratitude ranks up there with compassion and forgiveness as one of life's greatest virtues.

January is National Thank You Month and there is no better time to make a resolution to be grateful everyday for all things - big and small. Albert Einstein, a man who needs no introduction, used to say thank you over one hundred times everyday! We can all be inspired by that!

So let us say to you, our customers, we appreciate you more than words can express! Thank you!

Here's a great blog on ways to say thank you to lots of people in your life. Enjoy!

Security and Wi-Fi

Wi-FiAre your data files safe when you are connected to Wi-Fi? If your File and Printer Sharing is set to On, then you are at risk for a security breech.

Go to Control Panel and select Network and Internet, then select Network Sharing Center. From here select the option Change Advanced Sharing Settings. Under Public or All Networks, make sure to turn off File and Printer Sharing and turn off Public Folder Sharing.

The Importance of IT Support

Depending upon the size of your practice, you may have onsite computer and network support, or you may outsource the support to a local vendor. In any case, it is very important to have someone you can call upon to maintain your computer equipment and your computer network.IT Support

It is easy to view the maintenance of your computer systems as a burden, but in reality it is an essential part of business operations, and an essential part of protecting and maintaining your confidential information. We have recently been contacted by customers that have lost data for a variety of reasons. In some cases a computer system crashed or the data backup utilities failed to work properly. The result of such events can be disastrous, but can be avoided by properly maintaining your computing environment.

We recommend cultivating a relationship with your IT provider and recommend scheduling periodic visits to make sure everything is working properly. Some of our smaller customers schedule bi-weekly visits to check for viruses and spyware, as well as to perform a general status check of systems. The IT resource can also check your system backup and perform a test restoration of files to confirm the reliability of the backup utilities. Read more
